There is an entire population in turmoil. You’re aware, of course, that opioids are out of control; but did you know that in 15-month period between July 2016 and September 2017, 16 states reported a 35% increase in ED visits for suspected overdoses?
Emergency departments have their hands full; and the ‘full’ is extending to hospital beds. Between ’05 and ’14, a 64% cumulative inpatient stay increase was directly aligned to opioid abuse; a 99.4% ED visit increase was experienced for opioids.
Blaze Advisors’ clients have recently worked with us to develop, in conjunction with our technology partners Smartlink Health, a new intervention methodology we’re calling CONVERT. The multi-step system allows for early identification of opioid use and potential for abuse, then offers intervention via engagement, assessment and transition services.
Join us for this webinar, June 26th at 12:00 noon EDT, and see if your healthcare system could utilize this approach to improve population health.
